  • Cannot add anymore dividers or subjects

    By HonestReviewer90
    With the latest update, every time I try to add a divider, it stays empty and can't add a subject to it. The new subject can only be added to an old divider. Please fix your updates, it was better before! Now it's a waste of money.
  • Love this note taking app!

    By Shell8779
    This is perfect for taking notes in my graduate program, and at work.
  • The best note app if you can add research function

    By 郭昊坤
    I advise you to add a “research”function. it can help user to translate or search information in this app quickly and synchronously. If this apps can do this, it will be the only note app in my device!!!!
  • Amazing app: suggestion

    By Superoriginalnickname
    Amazing app! It’s continuously updated too for better functionality and quality of life. One suggestion for a feature would be an in-app calculator. That would definitely help people when hey undertake math problems using this app.
  • I love this app except..

    By Jueunee
    Just one minor minor issue I wish the developers would fix is when you use highlighters over the writing, it seems to veil the writing, making it look cloudy. (I am not sure if I am making any sense..) For example, GoodNotes automatically puts highlight layer under the writing making it clearer. If that can be fixed, I would be most satisfied with this app. It’s nothing but it bugs me every time I use the highlighter.
  • Good

  • Recordings don’t work anymore

    By nurse sn ash
    I’ve been using this app for years for my nursing school courses. Hands down my favorite apps for taking notes and recording my lectures UNTIL... the recording function stopped working. I recorded several lectures to go back to because the were challenging for me to understand. Went back to listen to the recordings for clarification and they were 3 hours of static. Very upsetting and now I will never have those recordings again. Have to rely on another classmate for the info now. Time to try good notes.
  • so far, only one star reduction

    By Blue Pine
    This has been such a great app! I have tons of class notes and pics in it. And I was happy to learn that they added custom colors, and that you could (supposedly) "create paper backgrounds in any color." I've really been wanting the custom colors. Although it remains a limited option, at least they exist now. Unfortunately, the paper color backgrounds upgrade is HORRIBLE. One would think that one would go to the paper picker, and be given the opportunity to pick your own color for your paper. Unfortunately, that isn't the case. You have to draw in a square, expand it, EXPORT it as a PDF [I'm not kidding], IMPORT it, and even then, it only has that one page. You would have to redo the whole process for every page. But wait, IT GETS WORSE. When I tried to do the same thing below (on page 2), it sort of did it, but this affected page 1 and now page 1 has white parts on one side as if the color I had changed the paper to was PARTIALLY ERASED. Unbelievable. Just send me to the paper picker and let me pick a color (and a VERY SUBTLE texture picker would be nice as well). Drawing in a color, and EXPORTING as PDF, and IMPORTING again, and all that goofy wacky ERASING are crazy. Feels like a desperate (failed) workaround to a bug rather than a "feature." I don't know what to do, star-wise. This is a great app. But this upgrade is so WACKY. I'll step away for about a month. Then reevaluate the stars downward if things aren't changed. And in a way that is SENSIBLE. Update: Still wacky. I took away one more star. So from five, now down to three.
  • Please fix...

    By Topsylaye
    I have now updated my app 3 times in hope of the bug issue of it taking hours to download all of my files into the app but ALAS! Here I am (not so patiently) waiting on it to download the notes I have inside of notability so I can access them. For the years I’ve had this app, this has never been an issue. What’s going on Notability? I want our relationship to be perfect and beautiful again, like it was for years... I don’t want to break up... But this might be it for us.
  • Very good app but one request!

    By xmx1024
    It’s great, but I wish I could change to a thumbnail grid style list with resizable thumbnails, instead of a list with titles and a small thumbnail. I don’t often name my notes, and this would be a great way to quickly see what each note looks like without having to open it
